Amiskwaciy History Series: Shared History is Reconciliation

Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 2.52.44 PM

Because Cree Literacy is so much more than reading and writing words, I was delighted to discover this new series of videos via YouTube from amiskwaciy-wâskahikan / ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᕀ ᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ (Edmonton, Alberta, lit., Beaver Hills House) thanks to Simon Gowen on the Facebook Cree Phrase/Word of the Day group. The link below plays the first video in the series, which will lead you to others in the weries, including Reuben Quinn’s two-part history of Cree language that includes his star-chart teaching of the syllabic writing system. Congratulations to those involved: Here’s hoping there are lots more videos to follow!
